He was not able to help the E.Tenn.St. in their game against the University of Florida (14-4) in the NCAA National Tournament Round 1. Mosquera-Perea scored 7 points and grabbed 5 rebounds. The E.Tenn.St. was defeated 80-65 at home by the University of Florida. The National Tournament Round 1 already ended in the NCAA. Mosquera-Perea's overall stats this season are: 8.3ppg, 4.7rpg, 1.2bpg, 2FGP: 58.6%(106-181) and FT: 56.0%. He is in the roster of the Colombian senior national team.

   #3. The Colombian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international guard Braian Angola-Rodas (198, currently studies in the States). Angola-Rodas was not able to secure a victory for the Florida St. (12-6) in their game against the Xavier University (9-9) in the NCAA National Tournament Round 2. He scored 5 points. The Florida St. was crushed 91-66 in Cincinnati by the Xavier University. The National Tournament Round 2 already ended in the NCAA. Angola-Rodas' overall stats this season are: 4.6ppg, 1.6rpg, 1.2apg, 2FGP: 47.7%, 3FGP: 42.0% and FT: 78.0%. He is also a member of the Colombian senior national team.

Hansel Atencia
Hansel Atencia
   #4. Guard Hansel Atencia (180-97, currently plays in NAIA) couldn't help the The Master's College, CA (12-4) in their last game on Friday. Despite Atencia's very good performance the The Master's College, CA was edged 77-75 in Fort Worth by the Texas Wesleyan University. He scored 16 points and grabbed 4 rebounds. The National Tournament Round 2 already ended in the NAIA. Atencia has relatively good stats this season: 12.1ppg, 2.6rpg, 3.8apg and 1.3spg. He is another player who holds two passports: Spanish and Colombian. Atencia is also Colombian national team player.


The list of other players, who all have Colombian passport but never been selected to any of Colombian national teams:

   #1. Experienced Luis Julio (201-F/C-80, currently plays in Venezuela) led Panteras to a victory over the fifth-ranked Toros (1-5) crushing them 103-82 in the Venezuelan LPB in Friday night's game. He was MVP of the game. Julio scored 23 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and dished 5 assists in 27 minutes. Panteras de Miranda (2-6) is placed fifth in Eastern Conference. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. Julio has relatively good stats this year: 13.1ppg, 6.5rpg and 1.5apg in eight games he played so far. He has a dual citizenship: Colombian and Venezuelan.

   #2. Cesar Cortes (200-F/C-81, currently plays in Liga Americas). Cortes could not help Fuerza Regia (3-0) to beat Leones (2-1). He recorded 5 points and added 8 assists. The league leader Fuerza Regia was crushed 90-68 on the road by the lower-ranked Leones (#3). Cortes has relatively good stats this season: 13.1ppg, 6.5rpg and 1.5apg.

   #3. Douglas Chiquito (193-G-86, currently plays in Venezuela) contributed to Gaiteros' victory against the fifth-ranked Panteras (2-6) 84-74 in the Venezuelan LPB on Monday night. He recorded 15 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 32 minutes. Gaiteros de Zulia (2-4) is placed third in Western Conference. But the season just started, so everything may happen. This year Chiquito averages: 9.0ppg, 3.4rpg, 1.4apg and 1.8spg in five games. He is another player who holds two passports: Colombian and Venezuelan.

   #4. Jesus Urbina (201-F-84, college: George Mason, currently plays in Venezuela) was the major contributor in Guaiqueries' victory against the fourth-ranked Marinos (2-4) 72-65 in the Venezuelan LPB last Monday. Urbina recorded 11 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists in 21 minutes. Guaiqueries de Margarita (4-4) is placed third in Eastern Conference. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. This year Urbina's overall stats are: 9.3ppg, 4.0rpg and 1.7apg in three games. He has both Colombian and Venezuelan nationalities.

   #5. Jackson Zapata (198-F-85, currently plays in Venezuela) is a teammate of previously mentioned Jesus Urbina and both played together in the last Venezuelan LPB game. Zapata contributed to Guaiqueries' victory against the fourth-ranked Marinos (2-4) 72-65. He recorded 7 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists. It's Zapata's first season with the team. Zapata's overall stats this year are: 4.1ppg, 2.6rpg and 1.3apg. Similarly like Urbina and Chiquito above he also holds two passports: Colombian and Venezuelan. Despite Zapata's Colombian nationality, he previously played for the Venezuelan U21 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Colombian team.

   #6. Fernando Lucena (185-PG-86, currently plays in Venezuela) was not able to help Gigantes in their game against Cocodrilos in the Venezuelan LPB. Lucena scored 6 points in only 11 minutes. His team lost 81-91. This year he averages only 6.8ppg in six games. Similarly like three previous players above, Lucena has dual citizenship: Colombian and Venezuelan.

   #7. Jorge Leon (188-PG-79, currently plays in Venezuela) managed to help Toros de Aragua in a victory against the fifth-ranked Panteras 90-71 in the Venezuelan LPB on Saturday night. Leon scored only 3 points in 5 minutes on the court. This year Leon averages just 2.2ppg in six games. He has Colombian and Venezuelan nationalities.

   #8. Cesar Silva (190-G/F-81, currently plays in Venezuela) is a teammate of previously mentioned Jesus Urbina. He played also in the last Venezuelan LPB game facing Jackson Zapata (above) in the other team. Silva contributed to Guaiqueries' victory against the fourth-ranked Marinos 72-65. He recorded only one point in 6 minutes on the court. Silva has relatively good stats this year: 13.0ppg, 4.8rpg and 3.2apg in six games. Similarly like five previous players above, he holds both Colombian and Venezuelan passports.
